Lex returns to Smalville and the Lex mansion, and invites Dr. Helen Bryce for a second honeymoon while trying to find out if it was her or his father who attempted to kill him. Meanwhile, Clark also returns to Smallville and the Kent farm, but Morgan Edge finds him and threatens to kill Jonathan and Martha in to get what Clark stole from Lionel Luthor's safe, which is the stolen vile of Clark Kent's blood. With the financial status of the Kent family in dire straights, the farm is sold in an auction, but there is a surprise in the end. Also, Lana tries to declare her love for Clark, but he rejects her love out of fear that she may discover his secret. Clark also returns to Smallville High and to the Torch newspaper under Chloe who continues to investigate Clark's origins. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Disappointing and Totally Flawed Conclusion
2 May 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The conclusion of the three last episodes of "Smallville" is very disappointing and totally flawed. The writer has opened so many situations that was impossible to give a satisfactorily and coherent end. I may list many examples: (1) Lana Lang kills one criminal of Morgan Edge (Rutger Hauer)'s gang in the barn of Kent Farm; Morgan himself and another gangster die in Metropolis later, but there is no investigation, connection or consequences; (2) Along three months, Clark Kent had stolen banks and spent the money in night-clubs, expensive cars and girls. In the end, a simple phone call to the police telling where "the rest" of the money is redeems his previous actions; (3) Why Clark Kent did not use his "super-speed" to save both Jonathan and Martha Kent from Morgan Edge criminals? Just because they were a few meters apart? (4) Why Clark Kent need to show his vulnerability to kryptonite to Morgan Edge? The criminal had no idea what he was looking for, so it would be much easy to deceive him. (5) Dr. Helen Bryce falls from Lex Luthor's airplane immediately after his return. There is no investigation, and nobody suspects of this tragic accident? (6) Clark Kent spent practically all the episodes trying to reach the heart of Lana Lang. When she is absolutely fallen for him, he simply gives her up? (7) Jonathan Kent's attitude towards Lex has always been of arrogance, scorn and disdain. But he easily accepts that Lex buys his farm in the auction and puts it back on his name. My vote is seven.
